The Tokyo Motor Show is just around the corner - doors open in December - so it was high time that automakers started revealing their plans, including the over 20 world debuts scheduled. Mitsubishi is starting off its announcements with two new models that will be in attendance in Tokyo. One of them is a second version of the PX-MiEV Concept first unveiled back in 2009. This new concept takes Mitsubishi’s existing EV technology a step forward, delivering more environmental performance and better fuel efficiency than any existing SUV.

The PX-MiEV Concept II uses a unique plug-in hybrid system that combines a small 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine with EV technology derived from the Mitsubishi i-MiEV. This system allows the Concept PX-MiEV II to offer an impressive economy of more than 60 km/l (141 mpg) and a cruising range of over 800 km (497 miles).

The hybrid system takes its power from high-capacity batteries that allow the vehicle to cover over 50 km (31 miles) in all-electric mode alone. The driver has a button that allows him to change from Battery Drive Mode (for those residential areas) to pure EV more (for the countryside).

Stay tuned because more details on the Mitsubishi PX-MiEV Concept II will be revealed at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.

Unlike you guys, I didn’t find this concept looking lousy on its platform and with its exterior detailing. Instead, it looks so cute for me, plain but looking very attractive.

Well, good thing that it is only a concept! smiley sorry to say, but its front really looks so lousy and the engine of it, is truly a disappointing. However, I’m a bit impressed on its technology.

Sorry to say, but this concept is looks so lousy but its unique on its platform and to its other detailing, and I don’t think that its engine will be quite good enough on this vehicle.

The platform of this Mitsubishi concept is really confusing, but I noticed that it had a futuristic touch. Anyway, the fact that this one is a hybrid car, I am hoping that it would have an impressive engine performance.
